WELLS — Anya Chase tossed a shutout and outdueled Kelsey Currier to lead Wells to a 1-0 win over Greely in a Class B South softball game Thursday.

The only jam Chase found herself in came in the first inning. With two outs and runners on second and third, Chase bore down and notched a strikeout.

“I felt like I had good snap on the ball today, so I felt confident in myself,” said Chase, who struck out 12, walked none and allowed only three hits. “But I knew I couldn’t have any mental slips because (Greely is) a really good hitting team and I knew that one hit, one play, could change the game, so I knew I had to be mentally tough the whole game.”

Wells, ranked first in Class B South, improved to 11-1 and ended Greely’s six-game winning streak.

“(Chase) did a good job of mixing her (pitches) and dominated a lot of the game,” said Wells Coach Kevin Fox.

“I knew (Greely was) going to be a tough team coming in; we lost to them last year in a tough game,” said Chase. “I knew I wanted to come out and beat them. I have a strong team behind me and we decided we were going to stay strong, have good energy in this hot weather and do our thing, play our game.”

In the bottom of the first inning, Wells pushed across the game’s only run when Chase hit a double and eventually scored on Olivia Clay’s sacrifice fly.

The Warriors threatened in the bottom of the second, getting runners on second and third with two outs, but Currier induced a comebacker for the third out.

“We didn’t give a game away. We got beat by a good team,” said Greely Coach Rob Hale.

Currier was outstanding for Greely (6-5), forcing weak contact from Wells hitters for most of the game and showing the ability to limit the damage with runners on base.

“(Currier) pitched well. (Wells) got runners on base, but she pitched well under pressure and got some popups and line drives. She’s not a strikeout pitcher, so she did what she does,” said Hale.

Currier allowed six hits, didn’t walk a batter and struck out two.

“Kelsey did a great job hitting her spots, and I thought I hit my spots as well. It was a battle. It was a really fun game,” said Chase.

Senior shortstop Moira Train played a strong game for Greely, making several good defensive plays. She also notched two of Greely’s three hits.

Timely hitting is a point of emphasis for Wells going forward, and Fox knows that it will be tough to win a lot of 1-0 games.

“It would have been nice to get a little offense for ourselves, but it’s good to be in those situations and win those types of games,” said Fox.

First baseman Sam Bogue collected two hits for the Warriors.

“I hope we see (Wells) again (in the playoffs). They’re a good team,” said Hale.
